Summer School 2019: Transformative Human-Environment Research & Participatory Methods: From Co-production to Co-producing
Monday 16 – Saturday 21 September 2019
Human-environment research is the interdisciplinary study of how humans live in, affect, govern, reflect upon and perceive their natural environment, and how, in turn, that environment supports or constrains human life and culture. Researchers are increasingly mandated to engage more actively with politics and the plurality of epistemologies and perspectives on these challenges that exist in society. So, how may human-environment research take an active role in transformative research for and with society? This is the overall question for this summer school which will be addressed by applying science and technology studies (STS) and political ecology perspectives to participants’ own cases as well as getting first hands-on experience with transdisciplinary research methods.

Developing my Research Vision
Thursday 17-10-2019 | Thursday 12-12-2019
This course is for postdocs and junior tenure track staff who wish to stay in science and must work on developing, formulating and communicating their personal research vision. In addition to developing your research vision, you will learn to effectively communicate your vision. By clearly explaining why you do what you do, you bring both yourself and your research in the limelight. You will feel much more confident when presenting to the tenure track committee, at conferences, in (social) media, and to cooperation partners.
